Please consider visiting my Donors Choose page to see if I currently have any projects.  These projects will result in your students receiving better educational opportunities through the generous donations of teachers, parents, and fellow community members.  It truly take a village to educate a child; please consider becoming part of that village.


Grading Policy:
Students may receive a maximum of 10 performance points per class for proper participation and performance of all musical activities.  Students are evaluated on their proper performance based on the National Music Standards Rubric. The rubric score is then converted to a score out of 10 for their performance grade.  All students in grades 3-6 can also receive a maximum of 10 points for properly completing the Musical Fact of the Day and the Musical Math at the beginning of every class.  Grades 3-6 also receive points for assessments during the school year such as rhythm tests, listening tests, and projects such as the African American Jazz Composition.  All of these scores are totaled and divided by the total possible score in order to establish the student's final grade for the 9 weeks.
